here at this rehearsal the band played thru several songs that their friend jo was going to add flute to for their debut album that was going to be completed the following week.This version of stage fave szabo gives jo a chance to familiarize herself with the tune...its a shame her flute is so muted by the p.a. but she was turned up for songs played later! check out 'sunny day song/black cypress' for proof...hope you enjoy this version and yes! we did complete the album the following week......
